Those that supported Trump are a lost cause- they have made it clear they enjoy the cruelty- Trump just announced that he will target the families of active duty troops for deportation… and his supporters will enjoy every bit of that cruelty.
After denying the claims of atrocious conditions in the concentration camps the Trump administration was hit by a report from an internal government watchdog revealing that the conditions are indeed inhumane:
Government Watchdog finds extreme overcrowding in Border Patrol facilities in unannounced inspections
Extreme overcrowding and children younger than 7 being held in custody for more than two weeks — far longer than the allowed 72 hours — are among the “urgent” issues discovered at Border Patrol facilities in unannounced visits by an internal government watchdog.
The unannounced inspections took place in early June in the Rio Grande Valley region of Texas, along the US-Mexico border. That area is the busiest sector for arrests on the southern border.
The report includes several photos that depict the extreme overcrowding, as well as standing-room-only conditions in some Border Patrol facilities, which are designed to be temporary holding facilities. However, over the past several months the length of time in custody has grown amid the ongoing influx of migrant families and children who turn themselves in to agents at the southern border.
For example, at the Centralized Processing Center in McAllen, Texas — the main location for unaccompanied children in the region — 165 children had been in custody longer than a week.
Investigators also found that, according to US Border Patrol custody data, roughly 30% of minors at the inspected facilities were held longer than the 72 hours permitted, including some children under 7 who had been held for more than two weeks awaiting transfer to Department of Health and Human Services custody.
The watchdog found additional violations of detention policy, such as a lack of hot meals, inadequate access to showers and limited access to a change of clothes.
For example, children at three of the five Border Patrol facilities did not have access to showers, despite a policy requiring that “reasonable efforts” be made to provide showers to children who are in detention for 48 hours.
And many single adults were found to have been receiving only bologna sandwiches to eat, causing some on the diet to become constipated and require medical attention.

At one facility, adults were held in standing-room-only conditions for more than a week. At another, some adults were held in overcrowded cells for more than a month.
“We are concerned that overcrowding and prolonged detention represent an immediate risk to the health and safety of DHS agents and officers, and to those detained,” reads the report.
A senior Border Patrol manager at one of the facilities called the situation a “ticking time bomb,” with senior managers at several facilities raising concerns for the safety of the agents and detainees, according to the report.
